  • What’s the most exciting thing to come you have been presenting? Probably the most enjoyed demo is the one called “Rainbow Membrane”. It’s an interactive demo where you can manipulate/sculpt a colorful bearded face. People love it, and are very funny to watch too! See @dietrich 's video from MozFest with kids playing with Rainbow Membrane.
  • What is the lowest, entry level thing you can do to start learning to dev VR? or even teach someone else? You could get a Cardboard VR viewer and use it with Firefox for Android Nightly or latest Firefox OS (nightly-latest recommended.)You might need a beefier phone to be enjoyable, but theoretically it could work even on a Flame.

  • on Firefox for Android Nightly (can also be enabled in latest Firefox OS Nightly):
    1. Use a cardboard: https://twitter.com/dietrich/status/663467202989989889.

  1. Switch channel to nightly-latest.
